Barry Bonds Biography

Barry Lamar Bonds is a former American baseball left fielder who played 22 seasons in Major League Baseball with the Pittsburgh Pirates and San Francisco Giants. Bonds received seven NL MVP awards and 14 All-Star selections, and is considered to be one of the greatest baseball players of all time. He is ranked second in career WAR among all major league position players by both Fangraphs and Baseball-Reference.com, behind only Babe Ruth.

Bonds was regarded as an exceptional hitter, and finished his regular season career with a very high on-base percentage and isolated power. He holds many MLB hitting records, including most career home runs, most home runs in a single season and most career walks. Bonds also received eight Gold Gloves for his defense in the outfield.

Bonds led a controversial career, notably as a central figure in baseball's steroids scandal. In 2007, he was indicted on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice for allegedly lying to the grand jury during the federal government's investigation of BALCO. The perjury charges against Bonds were dropped, but he was convicted of obstruction of justice, pending an appeal. Source: Wikipedia
